I adore teaching workshops because I can incorporate all the techniques of  yoga that do not fall under the classic “yoga” heading and apply them to LIFE!  especially the therapeutics and individual work.

 Yoga for the Peaceful Woman Yoga for The Peaceful Woman workshop and  Retreat was created to inspire women to be powerful in their world, embrace their truths and support one another in their authentic voice. In this three hour workshop, we weave postures, breathing and Hawaiian chanting to open the body, mind and spirit to answer these important inquiries. The spirit of Aloha flows seamlessly as we share, laugh, and “Talk Story”.  Discover the joy and richness of what it means to be a peaceful woman in the world.  Great for all fitness levels. Dates TBD

Viniyoga, the art of adaptation
Viniyoga focuses on the individual and the classes include a flow which is a more personalized approach to a group yoga class. Here, people will learn how to adapt their postures for their particular body type, age, needs. I find that people really benefit when I teach this because it gives them permission to take care of their own injuries as well as to honor whatever stage of healing their body is in. True awareness.

T’ai Chi Chih , Joy Through Movement: Dates TBD
I can offer a certified training as well as a level 1,2 and 3 class series in T’ai Chi Chih, moving meditation. This can be taught in a series or several two hour classes.

SPECIAL  Health and wellness club series: Dates TBD

  • THE Breath and THE LIFT: Incorporating the yogic breath into weight training and lifting to deepen the meditative aspects of your training and the internal strengthening of core muscles.
  • En-Chanting your lift; Using yoga postures with weight training and sound ( deep vibrational vocals are like electric shock to the muscle groups) to accelerate and deepen the techniques.
  • lifting and stretching PROPerly ” why do we need a block?” I get this question all the time. I reply with “the block is your friend” So, make friends with your props in this workshop. The proper use can accelerate stretches while lifting weight or to support an area that needs a little help until it builds up.

FIVE nights of Musical “Om-ing” Dates TBD

We do a 2  hour yoga practice to great music, get all sweaty and just have a blast. Safer than other sweaty activities and we end in a final “OM” of bliss and gratitude. The original inspiration for the YogaFests! Enjoy this club scene of a different kind. Gotta have some fun in these serious “economic” times.  Included in this series is Rockin Yoga, Hip Hop Yoga and Disco Yoga, Jazz Yoga, and Classical Tai Chi Chih and Yoga.

I offer all these workshops to corporate wellness programs as well as to individual clubs and studios. Please contact me for further information and prices.
